It Is Not God's Will for There to Be Another Jerusalem Templeby Max Aplin
There are many Christians today who think that the Bible prophesies the existence of another literal temple in Jerusalem. Some are even trying to cause this temple to be built. However, Scripture does not teach that there will be another literal temple. Encouraging Jews to rebuild the temple is to point them towards the Old Testament sacrifices that cannot take away sins. Like Gentiles, Jews need faith in Jesus for salvation.

Preeminent Role of God the Father in the Trinity: What about the Council of Nicea and the Nicene Creed? - Part 1Aby Karl Kemp
The primary purpose of this paper is to show that God the Father has an eternal preeminent role in the Trinity, which means that the Son of God (and the Holy Spirit), although He is Fully deity with God the Father, has a role subordinate to the Father. This is important for us to know; it is extremely important for us to rightly interpret God's Word, and it is quite relevant to how we live our Christian lives, including our prayer and worship. Part 1 of this paper introduces the topic and mentions my earlier papers that are relevant to this paper and includes several extensive excerpts from those papers.
Can Luciferians avoid a Future of Indescribable Horror?by Eugene Lopatynsky
What characterizes a true Christians is LOVE and FORGIVENESS. This is almost impossible to understand. Without God, almost impossible to do.

What Is Man That Thou Art Mindful Of Him?by Dr. Henderson Ward
David was neither seeking information about man's physical, mental or spiritual structure, nor was he going through some identity crisis. No, David was asking for something far more profound.

Should Single Christians Aim to Get Married or Not?by Max Aplin
The Bible teaches as a general principle that although it is good for single Christians to get married, it is even better for them to remain single. Nevertheless, this is only a general principle, and God does in fact want many Christians to get married, for a variety of reasons. We must not downplay the radical nature of what it means to be a follower of Jesus.
The Ghosts in the Machineby Rochelle Arnold
Recently I interpreted a dream for someone and during the process the Lord spoke to my heart and said, "It's the ghosts in the machine." I had heard that phrase before in my life but honestly never quite understood what it meant. So I did some research and found out that The Ghost in the Machine is a book that came out in 1967 by Arthur Koestler. It is in the philosophy and psychiatry genre. The premise for the book is called dualism or mind-body relationship. Koestler tries to explain that the mind of a person is not an "independent non-material entity". There are numerous references and meanings to the expression "ghosts in the machine."

THE GAY ARE NOW PILLARS OF OUR COMMUNITY?by Eugene Lopatynsky

When you've Done ALL That You Can Doby stephanie reck
As a parent of a prodigal child, I can assure you that I have done everything possible to bring my child back to the ways of Christ. I have fasted many, many times in hopes that," some things are broken by prayer and fasting alone." Last December, I was fasting 1-2x per week, believing that my fasting was helping bring my child closer to Christ and breaking the "strongholds" in his life. Fasting alone did not seem to be working, so I then added a book about praying scriptures over your prodigal children. I prayed through the entire book in the 90 days it suggested, believing that was the answer-praying scripture daily. I was already praying morning and night for my child, but when my prayers were seemingly going unheard,

Our Destiny by Henry Miranda

Do Not Forget The Cup Of Salvationby Dr. Henderson Ward
Under the Gospel dispensation, worship and godliness are less about external symbolism and images and more about the spiritual workings internally, i.e., the heart, mind, soul, spirit and conscience. But some symbols are timeless.
Christians Should Try to Learn All They Can from Their Sins and Mistakes by Max Aplin
Whenever we commit a sin or just make some sort of honest mistake, we will usually want to put that thing to the back of our mind and forget about it as soon as possible.

Is the Church Spiritual Israel?by Max Aplin
Dispensationalists can often be heard claiming that the Bible never portrays the church as spiritual Israel. In fact, it clearly portrays the church as spiritual Israel.

PARTNERS IN TRANSFORMATION: TOWARD A NEW CHRISTIAN ENVIRONMENTAL ETHICby Jim Rotholz
Today most Christians think of the environment in terms of a stewardship model that separates humans from nature. A true biblical perspective, however, is one in which humankind and the natural world exist in a web of relationship under God's benevolent control. It is time that we reformulate the stewardship model into one where we are partners with creation in God's overall plan of redemption.
